LeeBoy, an industry leader in commercial asphalt paving equipment, has introduced the 8608 asphalt paver.

Equipped with an efficient narrow conveyor management system, the machine is ideal for heavy commercial paving and large volume job sites, the manufacturer said.

"We saw a demand in the market for a narrow conveyor machine in this size for certain crews and applications," Chris Broome, senior product manager at LeeBoy, said.

"We do offer a narrow conveyor on our larger 8616D machine and the 6150, but wanted to bring the narrow conveyor concept, coupled with high production, to a more compact paver."

Smooth Ride + Ease of Maintenance

Operator comfort is always in the forefront of each LeeBoy machine, but the new 8608 asphalt paver takes that to another level with the addition of the Oscillating Bogie Style Track System.

"The tracks on this machine are set wider apart which gives contractors additional clearance to drive over utilities, but we also added the Oscillating Bogie Style Track System as a premium benefit to this new machine," Broome said. "The oscillating bogies allow the tractor to ride over an obstacle more smoothly which not only benefits the operator, but the end product as well. The smoother the tractor, the smoother the operation of the screed which in turn improves mat quality."

The demand in the market for a narrow conveyor machine in this class not only satisfies an industry need, but also drives efficiency in maintenance and operation. The machine also includes a lowered SCR, exhaust and flat hood for enhanced operator visibility and access.
